    I use the method katybob showed. Easy, I don't need a special ruler and it works every time. someone did a really nice tutorial on making them this way here on the board, I don't know the URL.

    Here it is. I cut the C squares 4" instead of 3-7/8" and trimmed them a little.

    Me too except I pass the HST leftovers to people who make projects with small HSTs.

    Cat-a-wampus (not sure if that is a word in anyones world but mine) but it means usually crooked. Bad I know. But I do not use a ruler for these.I usually stay away from patterns with them because my seams take points off and I do not like no pionts on my fg.

    After you make one set it is so easy and you can do it without much effort at all. I bought the rulers on Amazon at a good price.
